Paz Vega and Jamie King have The Spirit

They're joining Frank Miller's comic book adventure...

As if Frank Miller’s adaptation of Will Eisner’s The spirit didn’t have enough sex appeal already – with Scarlett Johansson and Eva Mendes (and Samuel L Jackson and Gabriel Macht for the ladies), the director has added Paz Vega and Jamie King just in time for shooting to start today in New Mexico.

The story of a young police officer (Macht) who returns from the dead to fight evil and battle his nemesis The Octopus (Jackson), The Spirit will now include Vega as Plaster Of Paris, a knife toting bad girl and King as Lorelei, a phantom siren who leads men to their death.

Miller’s aiming for a January 2009 release date.
